The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 4 was the most eagerly anticipated e-reader of the year and it is now available. This device features a waterproof design and has Bluetooth for Audible audiobook support. Amazon does not sell it worldwide, only in select countries. This has created a situation where platforms like EBAY are the only option, but users will try and charge 2x to 4x the price, because it’s so new. Good e-reader is making the Paperwhite 4GB, Paperwhite 32GB and Paperwhite 32GB with 3G/LTE internet access at reasonable prices. None of these Kindles have Special Offers, so you will never see advertisements on the home screen or lock screen. We ship worldwide, so you can ensure that you will get it quickly and in time for the holidays. You can buy with confidence by having the standard Kindle warranty and the legendary Good e-Reader customer service and support.
The Paperwhite 4 features a 6 inch E Ink Carta HD capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1072×1448 and 300 PPI. Amazon is using a plastic-backed 300ppi E Ink display, but it isn’t E Ink Mobius; it’s the company’s own design and it is made of plastic, not glass. The screen is completely flush with the bezel and this is done because it is the first Paperwhite that is waterproof with IPX8 certification. This means you can read in the bathtub or at the beach. It is also immune to spills such as coffee or tea.
Underneath the hood is a Freescale 6SLL Cortex-A9 @800M/1GHz processor and 512MB LPDDR3 of RAM. There are two different storage models, depending on your needs. The first is 8GB which is twice the amount that the Kindle Paperwhite 3 employed and a 32GB model, which is ideal for people who have large collections of manga or PDF files. The Oasis 2 and Kindle Paperwhite 4 are the only two e-readers that have different storage configurations. I like the fact there is two different storage options, depending on the user.
Audible is a big draw on this Kindle. You can connect to your existing Audible account and download all purchased audiobooks from the cloud. If you are new, it is easy to register an account and start purchasing content directly on the e-reader. Connect up a set of wireless headphones or your wireless speaker system, such as a SONOS.
